I am delighted to be exhibiting once again at the California Book Fair. The Fair runs from Friday February 11th through to Sunday February 13th and is once again at the Oakland Convention Center & Oakland Marriott City Center.
For a full list of what will be on the stand see California22.
One particular highlight is an early example of a photographically illustrated book created by Josef Georg Böhm- a photographic copy of a 1640s manuscript relating to Tycho Brahe dealing with trigonometry, Photographische copies von Tycho Brahe’s Manuscript. One of only five copies produced, it is currently the only one in private hands – with no copy in the US. It was produced privately in Prague in 1862 and has a wonderful description by the author of the technical challenges faced trying to take the photographs of the manuscript.
